Ty Gibbs, Driver of the No. 54 He Gets Us Toyota GR Supra

“Haven’t been to New Hampshire before, so looking forward to getting out there and seeing what it’s like. It’s an interesting track as it’s flat, but you also reach high speeds. I’m sure Chris Gayle and the boys will bring a good He Gets Us Toyota GR Supra.”

Chris Gayle, Crew Chief of the No. 54 He Gets Us Toyota GR Supra

“New Hampshire is a new track for Ty and it can be challenging at times. JGR has a great history there in Xfinity and the 54 team won with Christopher Bell last year. So we are hoping to repeat with Ty and I know well bring him a great He Gets Us Toyota GR Supra.”
